As a junior culinary technician, I spend most of my day assisting the chefs or food scientists by batching samples that are either sent to the client or is tested on product. Occasionally I assist with the preparation of dishes that are using products produced by Griffith Foods to market to customers.
I have learned so much from the food scientists and the chefs, they are all friendly, knowledgeable and provide a nurturing environment for everyone to grow within the food industry.
Easy work load and responsibilities. However, poor management and overall work environment makes working in the company frustrating and disappointing. Not to mention heavy focus on budget which disables the company to transact business efficiently as price/budget is chosen over sensible practices or methods along with being short staffed. This results in employees being overworked and feeling overwhelmed. If transparency, accountability, fairness and change are not qualities you value, you should have no problem working here. On a positive note, the company offers good pay and benefits. Many social events throughout the year, good focus on volunteering programs and good health benefits and rewards.
